Hi Tom.
This would be a very big job to do. Why not go out and buy the Hema maps on DVD, will save you a lot of trouble and will work straight away with OziExplorer.

Yes Im with Stephen on this one. You can purchase/download individual Hema maps for ~$20

Hema Digital Maps

...however that is just our opinion. If you look here you will get a start in scanning your own maps.

Scanning Maps

Though I think this article is a bit outdated as you may be better off scanning and calibrating individual map sections and then using Ozi Mapmerge.

If your question was more related to how to calibrate a scan you may wish to read the OziExplorer help file and then get back with more specific questions if you get stuck.

Cheers

Hi Tom,
smaller maps work OK, but large maps are not that easy and become very large files. It is easier to buy the maps in digital format. If you want to scan in maps, all the instructions are in the help files of oziexplr. Start off small and gets lots of practice before attempting larger maps. You will find you are limited by your scanner and by having to "stitch" scans together to obtain one large map... not easy to do without professional software and expensive scanner.

Hi Tom, I agree with Fred, I work in prepress and have access to a high end scanner but still buy digital maps it is just hard work and takes hours. I bought the Hema desert maps dvd 4 years ago for about $70 and it covers 6 paper maps. Have a look at their site.
